But the transportation and and fuel delivery infrastructure that supports our electrical grid would rapidly begin to breakdown, even in areas the infection has not yet reached. Everything is so interdependent that things would go south very quickly. I'd remain cautiously optimistic that resources and labor expectations would give priority to basic services like power, water, communications and essential government services. But eventually, utility workers will become afraid to leave their homes, want to focus on their own preps and/or lack the fuel to drive themselves to work. Once that begins to happen, I imagine what we've come to recognize as a functioning society would rapidly grind to a halt.
